'll push as hard as we can. martha: mark these send, former speechwriter to president george w. bush. alcan combs -- alan colmes, host of the "alan colmes radio show". good morning. big day in america. great to have you both with us. you heard david plouffe's remarks. you worked for president george w. bush. is there common ground that needs to be sought on this issue in this country, do you think? >> i think there can be. look, i have two daughters who are the exact same age as the kids who died in newtown. there are a lot of things the republicans can support like the president announced. better gun owner and safety education and mental health support and helping develop emergency responses and the rest but when the president goes to gun control i think the public support and bipartisan support drops dramatically. there is a fox news poll shows only 22% of americans believe more gun control would have actually stopped an incident in newtown where as 71% think the criminals will get guns anyway. the 71% are right. there sim peer call evidence that shows it. i think it is a mistake to go af

. is that the case? karl rove, former senior advisor to president george w. bush and a fox news contributor and good morning to you, karl. i see you stayed far away from washington, d.c. today, back there in austin, texas. what do you think that number, 55%, reflects based on what we've watched over the past two months? >> well, it reflects people paying attention to what's been going on. the president has been far more confrontational after the election. in fact, excuse me, "new york times" article yesterday interviewing a bunch of his friends where one of the takeaways from his friends and aides, he would be quote, more bloody-minded about republicans. recent stories in both the post and "l.a. times" and "new york times" where his aids felt aides felt he was liberated in his section term. liberated from what? take on political opposition and focus on defeating the republicans in the fourth fourth election. most presidents say they're liberated. i'm never on the ballot again. i can work with people to bring together big purposes. the president has much smaller objective. let me beat use my power to
will introduce george w. bush's plan. >> bob: not his. but look like bush's plan. >> eric: look back, october 25, october 30, 2008, president obama soon to be president obama said america get ready, i am going to fundamentally transform america. the first four years he got obamacare through and he did some things with stimulus and whatnot, that are questionable. this one, this little speech is, if this is a table of content for the second term, look out. we will be in for -- >> kimberly: well on his way. well on his way. >> bob: what do you disagree with? >> dana: energy job, climate change. >> eric: climate change. entitlement have to be on the table. immigration. that will be a big one. you and i have different ideas on how we handle that. >> bob: you are going to take your party in the toilet. >> dana: we have one more block on this. we will get to martin luther king junior and climate change. more ahead. great moments including performance by kelly clarkson and beyonce and inauguration trivia. look over eric's shoulder for that. how much do you know about the historic day? we have a quiz and
. that was the same approval rating that your former boss, george w. bush, had on his inauguration day. >> by the time august and katrina happened, the end of his presidency started with that. he started at 52 and went down to the end of it. >> you can make argument against term limits. but lyndon johnson understood, he had a few months. just a few months. that's when he got voting rights done. that's when he got a lot of those major pieces of great society legislation done, was in those months of 1965. medicare, all that. and so, i think we're likely to see a lot of activity right now. >> on immigration, guns, debt. all coming up. we're going to get that all day long here. >>> i want to go back to josh elliott on pennsylvania avenue. you're giving us a little weather, right, josh? >> it's a beautiful day. you were speaking of the battle lines drawn. let today stand as it is, an oasis of unity. one that is brisk but sunny. we want to thank our sam champion dearly for the weather we have in the nation's capital today, sam. >> just because it could have been worse. we've had everything. it's the topic a
's no wonder charlie brotman has volunteered his voice to this american ritual. >> president george w. bush and first lady laura bush. >> reporter: sounds to me like you wouldn't trade this for the world, this experience you've had. >> if i had to, i would pay them to let me do it. i love it. >> reporter: charlie blrotman gt his start as the announcer for harry truman in 1949. he was a student at a broadcasting school when the call came in. by 1957 he had the job from then on. charl kri brotman truly knows these parades better than the presidents themselves. jim acosta, cnn, washington. >>> good morning, good afternoon, everyone. i'm kate bolduan. welcome to our special coverage of the presidential inauguration weekend. >> i'm john berman. great to see you. you are looking at live pictures now of the first family marking today's national day of service. people all over the country are doing the same thing the obamas are doing right now, volunteering in their community on this martin luther king holiday weekend. this national day of service going on here on the national mall where the presid
to be lower than his first. president george w. bush's second inaugural in 2005 drew up to 500,000 people.>> it may be sot before we get the official estimate of the crowd here, certainly not 1.8 million who were here in 2009, but estimates before the inauguration ranged from 600,000 to 800,000 but what we can report to you is that there were a lot of americans in the national mall today who were overjoyed to witness history, inauguration of any president is a remarkable moment in american history. and they were there today, many of them with their children to see these events. the president was inaugurated of course under the -- in the shadow i probably should say, the capitol dome. a fascinating thing about the dome of the capitol, this year is the 150th anniversary of the completion of the capitol dome. something that was mentioned today during the president's inauguration. here is a look at the dome as it was under construction during the civil war. now, when the civil war broke out so much cast iron was being used in building the dome and it was piled up all around the construction
of them will not be here today. george w. bush, and george h.w. bush. the 88-year-old just got home from the hospital because of bronchitis and infection. and his son, george w., said he wanted to be with his father. but his dad said, when you leave the stage, stay off the stage. that's liberating. >> president carter, in september, set the record for the longest retirement in presidential history. it had been held by hubert hoover. now, jimmy carter's been ex-president for 32 years. and what he has done with that, as well. you see the crowds crossing pennsylvania avenue. everyone gathering. the president will be coming to the capitol, starting around 10:40. >> we are told, people are given much clearer directions this year about where they go, when they can cross. that security has asked that apps are guiding everybody. people were stuck in a tunnel four years ago, and couldn't get to their destination. >> 2 million people came to the mall. under 1 million this time around. you see the crowd right there. the president and the first lady are inside the white house right now. earlier this

there on inauguration day. george w bush as well. somewhat of a tradition that started back many, many years ago. after that they will proceed back here to the white house. scheduled to be a tea with the joint congressional committee. after that, they will head to the capitol. the first lady along with the president and families will be going up to the capitol. they will be seated right before the swearing in ceremony which is expected to happen before noon. tom will be covering that for us up there. that's the latest here so far. check back in with you in a little bit. >> great shot, sarah. looks good. thank you very much . >> thousands of people have began lining both sides of pennsylvania avenue. they are ready to watch the president walk from the capitol back to the white house. >> coming up, i don't know if he's going to walk but we'll find out later on. >> with all of you. >> still ahead, we're going to talk to lauren. she is live at freedom plaza. right now 7:12. fox 5 morning news , the presidential edition of fox 5 morning news will return.  >>> sky fox giving
of political capital. we remember the famous line george w. bush delivered saying i've earned political capital and i'm going to use it -- or spend it, rather. how much political capital did this president earn in his first term? i want you all to weigh in on that quickly. >> i think it was manifest in the fact that he got re-elected by a rather decent margin. even an opposition party who reads election returns that may mean something but after the fist year it means less and less. the result is if a president is more and more frustrated in congress, what second-term presidents have tended to do is, one, try do more by executive action, as president obama is already trying to do with gun control, and the other thing is they get more involved in foreign policy than perhaps before because that's something they could do without consulting congress every hour. >> the death of osama bin laden was huge. and that gave him an enormous amount of political capital. but there are so many things that he can't predict. i mean with ronald reagan, he had iran/contra, and that really pulled -- you talk about b
it. >> reporter: despite that pledge in 2004, george w. bush's second term was marred by a slew of bad headlines from escalating violence in iraq to his administration's response to hurricane katrina. >> doing a heck of a job. >> reporter: still second terms can offer a shot at redemption. take reagan paving the way for the end of the cold war. >> mr. gorbachev, tear down this wall! >> reporter: humor can also go a long way, like when bill clinton with a little help from his wife mocked his own lame-duck status. with this unforgettable video from his final months in office. >> i really think bill has everything under control. >> wait, wait, wait, wait! >> reporter: and of course depending upon what happens four years from now it may well be bill clinton making more lunches for his wife as she could potentially be among those vying for a chance to call the white house home. but as it comes to the second-term agenda for the president, the first thing at the top is complete your remarks for tomorrow's inaugural address, roughly 24 hours from now. we are told by valerie jarrett, one
the attendees. but neither president george w. bush nor george h.w. bush were in washington today. the president's arrival was greeted with applause and the lawmakers praised one another in bipartisan toasts and gift exchanges. speaker of the house john boehner presented flags to the first family and appealed for renewed political cooperation. >> we gather in the old hall to better hear one another >> ifill: moments later president obama echoed that appeal for cooperation >> i recognize that democracy is not always easy. and i recognize there are profound differences in this room. but i just want to say thank you for your service and i want to thank your families for their service because regardless of our political persuasions and perspectives i know that all of us serve because we believe that we can make america for future generations. and i'm confident that we can act at this moment in a way that makes a difference. >> ifill: and before they left the building, the group paused to look at the bus bust of dr. martin luther king, jr. that sits under the capital rotunda. then back into the cold
of democracy worldwide, which is the george w. bush freedom agenda. by failing to swear off the use of drone attacks did he say anything likely to disappoint the base on the left. the president is a man of the left. after today, the departure from the orthodoxy should fool no one. >> bret: still, you have the republican house, that stands really in the way of what could be a very liberal agenda for the progressive agenda. and in the "state of the union" address on february 12, probably get the shopping list of things that he wants to really get done. down in the weeds. to get that done you have to reach across the aisle at some point. >> you do. unless, your purpose is to make war. fight. believe the country will stand with you. with both houses in the same, in control of the party you ram through your agenda like he did in the first two years. not saying that is what he is planning to do, but it strikes me unless he is willing to reach out to republicans to offer them as part of what he wants, some of the things they want to compromise more than he has seen willing to. he says, of course, t

two living presidents george h.w. bush who was just released from the hospital and is who is now recovering, and george w. bush who sends his regrets. >> so as it happens because of the illness of the elder mr. bush, there will be only democratic presidents in attendance today. very, very unusual circumstance. the headline of the hour, the news broke moments ago by bob schieffer is that the republican leadership at this moment is in the white house having coffee with the president. perhaps a hopeful sign that agreements might come with the new year. >>> here's what's coming up the rest of this inauguration day. at 10:40, the president and mrs. obama leave the white house for the capital. the inaugural ceremonies begin at 11:30 and include the ceremonial swearing-in of vice president biden. then at 11:55, president obama will be sworn in by chief justice john roberts. and at noon, the president will deliver his inaugural address. that will be followed by lunch at the capital. then around 2:30, the president leads a procession back to the white house where he and the first lady wil

. the famous example in recent history is george w. bush. in 2005, remember he came out and did that press conference and said he had political capital and meant to spend it and the first thing he tried to do was pass a plan to reform social security that was just destroyed by the democrats, and then katrina happened. and his presidency was over by the end of 2005, at least the second term. so, you know, i spent a lot of time reporting on this the last year, talking to white house people, and they were very acutely aware of the dangers hidden in a second term. and i think the -- you know, i think what they'll be looking for is not overinterpreting that mandate, putting out an agenda one, that he campaigned on. not doing things he didn't talk about in the campaign, but two, trying to find some kind of bipartisan compromise in a congress that is very polarized. >> this is a key thing isn't it, jamal. you saw with the gun proposals. they were very, very ambitious. i was very proud of the president for what he did there, given the way we campaigned for that kind of thing on this show. and yet
by then president george w. bush. we're joined by our panel. we were talking about before climate change. how much can the president really do? what do you see him doing given him wanting to make efforts on gun control on the budget? on the deficit? >> let me say two things that he can do. i got interrupted for miss alicia keys. i'm sorry. >> today is an incredible day. and you can feel the energy everywhere that you go. in so many ways, every day is a new day. and a new chance. a new chance to be our best. to serve our highest purpose. yeah. so i'm going to need your help tonight because i'm up here all by myself. i just wanted it to be me and you. so help me celebrate this most momentous day. i'll tell you what to do. i need you to say -- ♪ ♪ people say eh ♪ ♪ it's a new day ♪ it's a new day ♪ getting ready, everybody ready ♪ ♪ eh oh, a new day ♪ a new day ♪ celebrate and say eh, eh ♪ celebrate and say eh ♪ yeah because he's president and he's on fire. hotter than a fab as they like a highway ♪ ♪ he's living in a world and it's on fire filled with catastrophe ♪ ♪
lothian, nice to see you again. thank you. >>> former president george w. bush was invited to the obama inauguration. but it turns out he can't make it. neither can his father, george h.w. bush. both attended the first inauguration. the elder bush is recovering from a month-long hospital stay due to bronchitis. and he's still getting physical therapy, as well. a spokesman for bush 43 says the former president and his wife, laura, wish the obamas "all the best for a wonderful inaugural weekend." >>> overseas now to algeria. seven hostages and 11 kidnappers are reported dead this morning as a hostage crisis enters its fourth day. algerian special forces have been trying to secure the release of an unknown number of people including americans all being held at this gas plant by an al qaeda-linked terror group. algerian state tv says the gunman had been planning to take the hostages to mali. senior international correspondent dan rivers is live in london. dan, so far at least one american is dead. six have escaped or been freed. what do we know about the other americans being held? >> repor

, the press secretary to george w. bush in the first term. ari, what does he need do? >> it is a question of genuineness. does he genuinely want to work with republicans, split with democrats on fiscal issues, mostly entitlement related. if he indicates a real willingness to do it i think republicans have to cooperate f he puts up walls and fights, we are in for the same thing we have been through the past few years. >> i think a big deal what the house leadership has done by essentially offering extend the let death limit debate for three months here, it feels like it changes -- let me pose the question, do you think it changes the tenor of this weekend and the tenor of the first few weeks of the president's second term? >> first few weeks. not this weekend it is special and different than the daily politickers this grinding out here. republicans save themselves from themselves. the debt limit is the republican's enemy. the sequester, the so-called cuts to the pentagon, hospitals and doctors, are their friend. if republicans try to make their final stand on spending too reduce spending b
and certainly in our lifetimes, richard nixon felt that when he had watergate. and certainly george w. bush must have felt the second term curse when in october of '0 , the economy tanked on him. you don't want to act like -- it's better to try to do one or two key things. with that said, i think this president like just the way eisenhower in his second term was able to talk about nasa and get nasa created, we might be able to do something with climate change, a large manhattan project like on a climate issue. he's not going to solve that, but there's a power to that and also travel second term. go to china. go to the middle east and try to become a big foreign policy president. he's getting us out of wars in iraq and afghanistan and eisenhower got us out of korea. i think ike's in the air these days. it's a -- eisenhower revision going on. >> douglas brinkley, thanks so much for coming in. >> the connections to the past and past presidents is always so fun it look at and so amazing how there are so many similarities. when we get back, we'll have the latest news of the day, of course, plus a beh

former presidents bushes, are not obviously -- obviously george h.w. bush has been quite ill for a while. we understand the president has arrived at the capitol building and is having some coffee right now with some of the congressional leaders. he made his traditional visit to st. john's church. they also made a trip to another church yesterday. and among those people to see that up close is bay area visitor alan antonio. >> they were actually attending services this morning. as we waited, they got in and there's nice video of mrs. obama waving with the motor came. >> reporter: they are here with their 9-year-old son who ashed a spot with the people to people -- earned a spot with the people to people leadership to be able to attend and witness the inall -- inauguration. this is their first trip to d.c. they are especially excited, since this is also martin luther king day. i feel so honored to be part of this moment in history. and just -- it represents everything that dr. king fought for. as an african-american woman, i've been teary-eyed since i got off the plane. i've been teary-eye
mentioned george w. bush, his father, george h. w. bush, has left the hospital in houston after nearly two months of being treated for bronchitis- related cough and other health issues. we go next to baltimore, maryland, jerry, a democratic caller. caller: thanks for taking my call. the republicans are very high disingenuous, and i'm being polite. if anybody was listening to the defense appropriation bill at the end of last year, just before they let us go over the fiscal cliff, republicans added $20 billion more than what the president asked for for the defense appropriation bill. this is the 20% there are going to have to cut during sequestration. now the defense department, if you keep the continuing resolution versus making a budget, they will get $680 billion this year. $20 billion more than what they ask for. yet they cannot pass a sandy bill. america, wake up. republicans that are in charge, and i guess you ququality party, they're just out to take our money. the poor and disenfranchised, they just laugh and say get a job, and they will not give you a job. host: on twitter -- in mic
. >> and david gregory, about a two-mile drive. >> and you remember in the modern era, george w. bush -- the language plate is -- >> yeah, the license plate just for a second here is a story. it's a -- kind of a protest legal local license plate here in washington, d.c. taxation without representation. the president has opted to use them on all the limousines. >> and that always comes up for presidents. >> d.c. has a delegate, a nonvoting member of congress. >> george w. bush met president clinton and they got along famously. they were swapping stories and how bush raised the sector of the shadow returns every time clinton would try to campaign for al gore. so that was chummier. and they kept on a pretty good relationship. >> you don't have to look that far back. in 2008, you had george w. bush and president-elect obama riding over together. while i think the obamas were pleasantly surprised as how smooth the transition was, how the bush administration bent over backward toes make sure there was a smooth transition of power, obama had run against bush and the bush policies and to this
. george w. bush got 62 million votes in the 2004 election and conservatives said he had a mandate. barack obama got 62 million votes in the two -- 2012 election, and conservatives started a secessionist movement. but the obama campaign took it to them and made a difference in the end. they helped create a new electorate, a coalition of concerned and they turned it out on election day. our two political parties are separate and not equal. the percentage of republicans who are white has remained fairly steady since 2000 at about 87%. the percentage of democrats who are white in contrast has dropped from 64% in 2000 to 55% now. independents have gone from 79% to 67% white since 2000. the depth of republican dependence on white voters explains a lot about the recent election. not least about its outcome. republican efforts to suppress minority voters back fired big time. [applause] in florida alone, 266,000 more hispanics voted than in 2008. similarly in ohio, 209,000 more blacks voted than in 2008. overall, while romney received 59% of the white vote, all hot -- obama -- omaha? obama got 93%
part, take a negative view today. in fact, president george h.w. bush congratulated the president saying barbara and i send president and mrs. obama and their wonderful girls our best wishes and prayers on this historic day. may all mighty god bless them and our country over the years. it seems like it was john boehner with the flags that flew over the capital during the inaugural ceremony. it seems like during some of the post inaugural address interviews, they did not give a hundred percent embrace. but they seem to feel the president was magnanimous and there was not the bipartisan -- the partisan bickering, at least not today. tomorrow is another day. >> right. we'll see when they start go earning. but the transition of power does matter. the fact that we transition in this way that people are -- i mean, my favorite two shot, so far, my favorite image, is that that included beyoncyonce stand near paul ryan and there was this vision of them together. this is fun. this is kind of american politics and culture, you know, crossing these lines. and will it hold? perhaps not. but fo
